GAA photographs from 1965 - 1968

November 8, 2018

Photographer Liam Lyons will present the first in a series of illustrated talks from his archives of GAA photographs. The first showing will cover the period 1965 – 1968. It contains a selection of 340 team and action shots taken from a total of 1400 photographs. For young players it will be interesting to see their fathers or grandfathers in the team pictures or in action jumping for a ball! Viewers will be amazed at the conditions they played in at that time. The games feature clubs from the North, South, East and West of Mayo as as well as County teams.
The illustrated talk is on in the Mayo County Library on the 25th April and admission is free.

Subsequent talks in the series – up to the 1980s – are planned for next Winter D.V.
